M hi inc Allen's Story.
"I never shall forget Rock Island for
one thing" said Whiting Allen, advance
press representative of the Forepaugh
shows last evening in a conversation con
cerning the citv's progressive and beauti
fying tendency, and there was a twinkle
in his eye as he continued: "It was here
that I saw Bob Grau's famous hottl clerk
conic opera chorus. Several years ago
when I was ia advince of the Carleton
opera company I rowel across from
Davenport one evenimj to see the Grau
opera company. It was run by three of
the four Grau brothers, sons of the
famous grand opera impressario. Two
of the three. Jules and Matt have since
been very successful. They made a ereat
deal of money last year. The other brother.
Bob, was a cenius, however, in his way,
and like most geniuses not always suc
cessful in the end. When he was sober
and clean he was a most persuasive fel
low. Year after year he would go out
with the grand opera cornoany and year
after year it would as regularly collapse,
but it was all the s me to Bib. Out he
would go again with a comptny. full of
blind faith in his genius and they would
worry along on the verge of starvation,
more cheerfully with him than they
would have worked for most managers
who would not only promise good salaries
but py them.
"The season spoken of was pretty far
advanced by the time the company
reached Rock Island; trunk after trunk
had been left behind to partially sttisfr
insatiate landlord. Fmallv the r,n!y
trunks left were t!io?e containing the
wardrobe. There was not much of that
but what there was was absolutely neces
sary. Then a hotel bill had to be met,
and all the money in the treasury would
nly pay railroad fares to the nest town.
Here Bob's genius came to the rescue; he
pleaded with the landlord that th; ward
robe wasn't worh a dollar to any oae
els:, but to him it meant present salvation
and future fortune.
"Send your clerk alons to the next
town and he can collect the first money
that comis in and I'll piy his fire both
ways.' The clerk having been intro
duced to some of the more or less pretty
chorus girls would be willing enoueh,and
Bob could usually induce him to bring
his trunk along, too, so that he could
change his clothes and paralyze the hotel
clerks in the next town. To at would
fetch them, and henceforth Bib would
have ons more trunk. Well, of course,
at the next to n there would not be
enough, so Bob would say whether there
was or not, and he would get the clerk to
go along to another town. Between
Bob and the chorus girls the clerk would
find himstlf one or two hundred miles or
more away from home before he wjuld
think seriously of going back. Bob was
certain to have borrowed all his money
from him, and by that time the landlord
would be so mad that he wouldn't send
for him. Of course, the very first night
out Bob would convince him that be was
a second Brignoli and had put him on
the stage. There he was and he couldn't
get away if he wanted to. and he didn't
want to. Usually the next week would
bring another clerk in the same fashion.
As each fresh clerk would come along to
collect a bill. Bab would drop one of his
regular choristers by the wayside. When
they reached Rock Island just one male
member of the company was with it as
it left New York. Whenever the Cell
would ring for the curtain to go up from
the rest of them, there was an inttinciive
cry in chorus of 'from?'"
f ound a Wolf nr.
As Barnard & Leas were excavating
yesterday morning for their new brick
block, after digging down through some
three feet of silid clay, where it was
supposed the bosom of mother earth bad
never been disturbed, they suddenly
struck what at first appeared to be a
stone wall. "The oldest inhabitant" was
consulted, and declared there had never
been a building in that locality. Mean
time they kept on excayating. and con
tinued the investigation, and finally it was
learned that away back ia 1830 one W.
H. Edwards had lived near this spot, and
as a protection against the wolves, which
were very numerous and bold in those
early pioneer days in these western wilds,
had dug a pit and constructed a wolf trap
which in later years was filled with stone
and other rubbish and all was forgotten,
and three feet of clay had accumulated

Th:s Year. v
Great preparations, snys the Republican-Journal,
are bein am ie for tha cele
bration of L vbor dty by tie Uor organs
gations of tha t'urej ci'.ia i t' li:ine this
year. This year it is that ci'.j'- turn to
take charge of the e xero ses, the first ol
servacca two years ag having been
managed by Rock Island, while Daven
port had tbe demonstration last year
The Rapublican Journal says:
It is the desire of the great army of tl e
workingmen in Moline tuat this should
be the best celebration of their day yet
held in tbe three cities, hut it can only be
made so with the interest and coopera
tion of our citizens generally. An indus
trial parade showitg the handiwork of
Molint's industrial population for whose
benefit the day has been set aprt would
be very appropriate. It is doubtful if
any town in the state outside the metrop
olis, can show such a diversity of labor's
products. Moline is known the world
over as the Plow City, but plows are but
one of the hundreds of useful articles with
which oar immense factories supply tbe
country at large.
A celebration of labor diy in Moline
without a display of the products of our
skilled workmen would be much like see
ing "Hamiet" played with the title role
omitted. Therefore it is desired that our
manufacturers all contribute to a display
that will be a credit to the city and to the
faithful toilers in tbe factories. It is a
mark of appreciation tbe employer owes
to the employed and will in turn be ap
preciated by the thousands of men who
will march in line ou this zreat day.
A meeting of the sub-committees of
the several labor organlzttioos ia Moline
will be held at Turner blt on Thursday
evening at 7:45 for the purpose of decid
ing upon the celebration. Many are in
favor of abandoning the idea of a picnic
on Sylvan island, but insteal, think it
would be more profitable to have the pro
cession bring up on Market square, where
some speeches will be delivered on topics
that are of interest to the working peo
ple. However, the place of holding the
celebration is not of the utmost conse
quence, if a good programme is arranged
a -;d entertaining speakers employed.
